After Upgrading to wpa_supplicant 2.10 my notebook with a Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 wlan adapter is not able to connect to my Fritzbox 7490 wlan with WPA2+WPA3 enabled.

The following error message comes in the dmesg:
[ 265.660395] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 34:31:c4:66:5c:c0 (capab=0x1431 status=40 aid=0)

There are also reports on the wpa_supplicant mailing list:

Downgrading to 2.9 fixes the issue.
This task depends upon

Have you tried any of the work arounds from [1] as an alternative to downgrading wpa_supplicant?

Same issue with a different Wi-Fi AP, a MikroTik RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN with RouterOS 7.1.5 and wifiwave2 package.
While I understand that, according to the workarounds suggested by loqs, this is a bug of the AP, I remark that all other operating systems are not as strict as this new release of wpa_supplicant and they work without issues.
Nevertheless, I'll try to open a bug report with MikroTik to see if this can be fixed in the AP firmware.

just tested to downgrade to
Did not work for me. Is there a specific 2.9.x version which should work?

Same here. There still seems not to be a fix upstream, right?

why hurry? You just need to disable an enhanced security feature in your router and everything is fine again.
Hopefully all maintainers of all disros keep up the pressure to upstream... but for a sane expectation management, I wouldn't count on that.

I got news from Mikrotik that this issue was fixed it in the most recent release of their firmware (RouterOS v7.3.1). I tested it on my laptop, and I confirm that now it works perfectly.
